Joseph Niezgoda was more than a fan of Lennon. He is a fan, collector, and scholar. Niezgoda raises the question “ Did John Lennon sell his soul to the devil?” Many coincidences are mentioned, including Lennon’s disdain of religion--especially Christianity. Lennon was extremely disrespectful of any Christian official. Lennon’s goal was to be more popular than Elvis, and he stated he was more popular than Jesus. While the Beatles were widely accepted and embraced in the US and England, they were asked to leave other countries. Lennon was fascinated by numerology. It is speculated that Mark David Chapman was used by the devil to kill Lennon. The theory is that Chapman was demon-possessed. The pact with the devil was suppose to last 20 years, and that’s how long his fame lasted. The lyrics to many of Lennon’s songs predict his fate.
Joseph Niezgoda well researched and documented his book The Lennon Prophecy. I have never been a big fan of John Lennon; however, I was quickly caught up in this book. The coincidences are fascinating, and there are too many to truly think they are a fluke.
